What People Are Saying

"Success is one thing, but wisdom is another. Or so it can seem. Most of us hope for both, even when they seem like rivals. In the case of Terry Looper, success and wisdom have come blessedly together. It wasn’t always so. Why and how did things change for him? I enthusiastically urge you to read Sacred Pace to hear his story and to grasp his answers."

Mark Labberton, President, Fuller Theological Seminary

"Terry Looper’s story is compelling because he pulls no punches on how hard life can be when we get seriously out of balance. The resulting wisdom that he acquired through those hard times is from God himself—learning to want God’s will more than our own! This truth, which is both ancient and contemporary, and the advice he gives as to how to incorporate it in our lives, will be life-giving for those who begin to move at a Sacred Pace in the same way Terry has."

Newton Crenshaw, President, Young Life

"Far too many leaders are struggling with the frenetic pace of their lives. The tragic consequences of a life out of control are predictable: deteriorating health, fractured relationships, and unsustainable results. In Sacred Pace, Terry Looper offers a better way—born of his own failures and ultimate success. This book can help you live and lead at a higher level!"

Mark Miller, International Bestselling Author, V.P. High Performance Leadership, Chick-fil-A, Inc.

"I’ve done more underlining per page in Sacred Pace than in any other book I have ever read. I sincerely believe that Sacred Pace is, after the Bible, the most important book I have ever read. My good friend and mentor Terry Looper has written a great book on business, decision-making, and, in no small way, theology. His transparency makes his words all the more meaningful, and his warmth and conversation-like writing style make the whole experience so personal and enjoyable!"

Christopher Crane, Executive Chairman and Cofounder of Edify

"The world is experiencing a shortage of leaders who walk their talk, but Terry and this magnificent book fill the void to the brim. Sacred Pace is the real deal, and you’ll find Terry’s heartbeat on every page."

Dr. Joe White, CEO and President of Kanakuk Kamps

"Terry Looper is both a known and unknown spiritual mentor to hundreds of people and  organizations, both nationally and internationally. The  nonprofit where I have been called to serve is thriving today because of Terry’s willingness to teach our leadership team the principles for finding God's will that are so brilliantly described in Sacred Pace. Reading will take courage, but the results are worth it!"

Vivian Shudde, Executive Director, Brookwood Community

"From finances to family, the decisions we make in everyday life radically shape who we become. In Sacred Pace, Terry Looper lays out a thoughtful, scriptural guide to wise decision-making. This book is for business leaders eager to make sound choices for their organizations, for husbands and wives who want to work together to live Christ-centered marriages, and for fathers and mothers committed to raising up compassionate kids. Sacred Pace is north-star wisdom for those who want to make extraordinary decisions in everyday living."

Peter Greer, President and CEO of HOPE International, coauthor of Mission Drift

"I have been absolutely floored by Sacred Pace! This book will be a powerful tool for a lot of people, but in my opinion it is essential reading for anyone who considers themselves an entrepreneur. If that’s you, this book will change your life in profound ways."

Dave Blanchard, Cofounder of Praxis

About the Book

9780785223375_image

How do we hear from God and discern His will when it's time to make big decisions? Terry Looper shares a four-step process for doing just that-a process he has learned and refined over thirty years as a Christian entrepreneur and founder of a multi-billion dollar company.

At just thirty-six years old, Terry Looper was a successful Christian businessman who thought he had it all-until managing all he had led to a devastating burnout. Wealthy beyond his wildest dreams but miserable beyond belief, Terry experienced a radical transformation when he discovered how to align himself with God's will in the years following his crash and burn.

Sacred Pace is a four-step process that helps Christians in all walks of life learn how to:

  • slow down their decision-making under the guidance of the Holy Spirit,

  • sift through their surface desires and sinful patterns in order to receive clear, peace-filled answers from the Lord,

  • gain the confident assurance that God's answers are His way of fulfilling the true desires he has placed in their hearts, and

  • grow closer to the One who loves them most and knows them best.

This book is not another example of name-it-and-claim-it materialism in disguise. Instead, it walks readers through the sometimes-painful process of "dying to self" in their decisions, both big and small, so that they desire God's will more than their own.
